Birds of a Feather is Killing Joke's third EP, released in October 1982. In that same month, the A-Side, "Birds of a Feather", was released as a single under E'G Records. Birds of a Feather completed the transition from Killing Joke's third studio album Revelations to their fourth, Fire Dances.[1] The tracks on this EP were released on the 2005 CD reissue of their live album, Ha!.

Production and release[edit]

Birds of a Feather was Killing Joke's first EP with the new bass guitarist, Paul Raven. It contained music that was artier and relatively calmer than the music from the band's first three studio albums, thus beginning a new direction. The new style was continued with the non-album singles "Me or You?" (1983) and "A New Day" (1984).[2]
